  1. Out of Sight engaged me less and less, until by the end I no longer cared which of the characters lived or died. Not even the engaging Jennifer Lopez, George Clooney, Albert Brooks, Don Cheadle, and Ving Rhames or the talented secondary cast can survive the abbreviations and last-minute shoehorning their characters receive.

Clooney had that Cary Grant swagger and charm in this great role. Jennifer Lopez and the very good supporting cast give good performances as well Full Review »

From the very beginning, it has you hooked and does not let go until the end. George Clooney is great in the lead role as expected. Jennifer Lopez, who I had never seen act before, also does a good job at doing what she does best; being sexy. Her acting is also good. Ving Rhames and Don Cheadle also have very good supporting turns here. I am not a huge fan of Steven Soderbergh usually, but he does very well here in the director's chair and manages to craft a very entertaining romantic crime film and make the romance feel authentic and the crime element thrilling and exciting. In addition, the comedy element was good. It was not gut busting laugh after gut busting laugh, but it was used sparingly and effectively to lighten up the mood. Overall, Out of Sight is a good, entertaining film that feels like more than your regular old heist film. Full Review »

The main attraction here is the sizzling chemistry between Clooney and Lopez. However, the film does have some inefficient elements, such as the useless cameo from Micheal Keaton. Overall, Out of Sight is good stuff. Full Review »
